    Camera-Fi'ers help!

    I need to have pictures taken from an Air Traffic Control tower of the view (360 degrees around) from the tower. Total there needs to be about 8 photographs (to cover cardinal points) and they need to have to full detail of the city skyline in the daytime. We had some pictures taken and the...

    The End "Elementary"

    I picked up The End's 2007 album "Elementary" on a whim a few weeks ago, listened to it in the car and chucked it on the CD rack dismissing it as a mediocre at best. I pulled it out when ripping all of my albums in iTunes the other day and have been listening to it in rotation with the new...

    Underoath "Lost in the Sound of Separation"

    I don't care how trendy Underoath is considered, "Define the Great Line" was an amazing record, and I have been in anticipation of the new record for a while. I bought "Lost in the Sound of Separation" on Friday and am just getting my first chance to spend some good time with it and my...

    The Pandora Recommendations Thread

    So having recently bought a laptop I've for some reason rediscovered Pandora while browsing the web on my couch. I've noticed that putting in a specific song or artist will start a really awesome station, while some of my favorite artists will start a terrible station. So here's the deal...

    Do I get to join the AT Woody club?

    I just picked up a set of AudioTechnica ATH-EW9's from MicroCenter for a disgustingly good price and all I have to say is - this is what classical should sound like, eargasmic. As a warning to prevent gotta-have-its that are prevalant here on Head-Fi : These cans were not made to rock. They...

    Alien DAC with RCA outputs?

    Is it possible to build an Alien DAC based on the Glass Jar Audio kit that has RCA outputs instead of TRS? Also as a follow up question, what kind of upgrades can be done on the Alien? I really want the best USB-in to RCA-out DAC I can get under $100 and I think DIY is going to be the way to...

    Have you ever...

    ...not wanted to discuss something on Head-Fi for fear of it becoming FOTM? That may sound like an odd question, but I've been thinking.... Take for example the STAX electrets. I've always wanted to try these, but everyone here says they are not worth over $100. If you get on eBay, these are...

    The Tuss - new Aphex Twin?

    I don't really know how many people here are Aphex Twin fans, but if you like the musical stylings of Richard D. James, then you owe it to yourself to hear The Tuss' Rushup Edge. Why should you check this 6 song mini album out? Well, aside from the speculation that this is RDJ under another...

    Finished my headphone search : beyerdynamic DT770

    I spent several hours today at Guitar Center listening to different, I bought a beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 80Ω and I think my search for a home headphone is over. After listening to several other mid-fi to low/hi-fi headphones, the DT770 really called out to me as my 'perfect' headphone. Having the...

    Rachmaninoff Symphonic Dances. Holy crap.

    After hearing the K2 HD sample of Rachmaninoff's Symphonic Dances, I was hooked. So I did a bit of research to find a decent copy and I found this version: Reference Recordings Rachmaninoff: Symphonic Dances Eiji Oue conducting the Minnesota Orchestra I am almost positive it is the...

    Calling all photography gurus : Grado wallpaper

    I LOVE the look of Grado headphones, woody cups, radio operator looks, steam punk goodness!! I remembered that there was a Sennheiser contest here recently... Then I was thinking "Man, I'd like a desktop wallpaper that had some Grados in it!" So here's a challenge for the photography minded...

    Looking for a CHEAP sub.

    I was curious if anyone has any recommendations for a less than $100 subwoofer to use with my PC speakers. My PC speaker setup as it stands will be a T-Amp gen 2 and a pair of Infinity RS10b bookshelf speakers (not 'hifi', but enough to enjoy games and music). It doesn't need to get very loud...

    Listening to Opera louder than usual

    I have recently gotten into Opera, and it's like love at first sight (or listen I guess...). I bought Verdi's 'La Traviata' with the wonderfull Anna Netrebko, and right now I'm listening to Wagner's 'Die Walkuere' on NPR.org. I've always considered myself volume conscious, I try and keep it...

    Got some free bookshelf Infinity speakers

    I just picked up a free set of Infinity RS 10b's from a friend. I haven't gotten to hook them up yet and was thinking of making them my PC audio system. He said these are fairly decent, but quite bright (brighter that his Yamaha NS10's). so I will probably buy a cheap powered sub and run these...

    Is anyone here a Police officer?

    I am taking the P.O.S.T. test on Saturday October 6th (and the physical if I pass the test). I was just curious if anyone here is a Police Officer and has any advice/tips for me. Also, are you rural or city, and any thoughts? Thanks
